As an independent Audiology practice, we are able to provide hearing aids from all major manufacturers around the world. As a result, we offer an extensive range of rechargeable and invisible hearing aids to suit the medical and cosmetic requirements of all our patients.
For example, we are one of the very few centres in the UK to offer the world’s first 100% fully invisible hearing aid – the Phonak Lyric.

1. The Premium range – will be the latest models available from our supplier list. This means the device will be of the highest level of specification and will have on board the latest features available – for clients wanting the best technology and wanting to maximise the usefulness of hearing aids, this is what will be suggested first.
2. The Advanced range will still be very rich in specification and performance but will not have some of the newer features seen in the premium range. For example, an advanced hearing system may have been premium a year or two ago, making it a very capable and proven device but not the best available. This allows us to pass it on at a very attractive price.
3. The Essential range – of hearing systems will be more basic technology but what makes our industry interesting now is that even the entry level devices are very capable and comprehensive, suiting patients on a budget whose lifestyle isn’t as fast paced.
Whether your choice is Premium, Advanced or Essential, we will still provide the same high level ongoing aftercare for the lifetime of the device included, all inclusive of the price.
Common questions about hearing aids
When you buy hearing aids privately, you will be able to choose from hearing aids with the most advanced technology. This means the clarity will be significantly better.
While you are able to get a free hearing aid on the NHS, these are not the most advanced models. Sometimes, with these cheaper hearing aids, background noise can make everything seem louder, affecting clarity.
Private hearing aids with the latest tech are more effective at distinguishing between speech and noise, and they can amplify speech with far greater clarity. Some hearing aids even have advanced features like being able to connect via Bluetooth to phones and laptops, while others are rechargeable for extra convenience.
We provide a selection of high-quality hearing aids at London Hearing, consisting of our Premium Range, Advanced Range and Essential Range.
Phonak Virto™ P-Titanium hearing aids are the smallest and most discreet hearing aids. These are positioned in the ear for maximum comfort. We also have the Phonak Audéo Paradise, a Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) model that provides an excellent hearing experience in background noise. It can also connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth for streaming and app controls. Phonak Audéo Paradise also comes in a rechargeable form so you never have to worry about changing batteries.
The right hearing aid for you will depend on several factors, so contact us to find out more about which is the best choice in your circumstances.
Hearing aids are small devices that fit in or around the ear and help people who are experiencing hearing loss to hear with greater clarity. There are different types of hearing aids including in-the-ear (ITE), behind-the-ear (BTE), in-the-canal (ITC) and completely-in-canal (CIC) models.
Hearing aids are electronic devices that consist of a microphone, an amplifier and a speaker. Some sounds are amplified so that the person wearing the hearing aid can hear more clearly. They can improve quality of life, helping the person to join in conversations and participate in activities with greater ease. They can provide hearing assistance in both loud and quiet settings.
Hearing aids come in a wide range of sizes and styles, and some are more advanced than others. Some have features like Bluetooth connectivity and can connect to smartphone apps. However, they typically consist of three parts: a microphone, an amplifier and a speaker.
The microphone receives the sound from the surrounding area. It converts the sound waves into electrical signals, and these signals are then sent to the amplifier, which increases their power. Finally, they are sent to the speaker so the person can hear the sounds more clearly.
It’s impossible to say whether you need a hearing aid or not without a consultation with an expert. However, there are certain signs that suggest you may be experiencing hearing loss, which you should get checked out.
If you regularly find yourself complaining that people are not speaking clearly enough or speaking too quietly, are having difficulty following conversations in noisy environments, finding that you want to turn the TV up to a higher volume than other people in the room want, or you are experiencing difficulty when speaking over the phone, you may need a hearing aid. These signs don’t necessarily mean that you need a hearing aid, but they provide an indication that you should at least get your hearing checked.
Your audiologist can show you how to adjust your hearing aid or make the adjustments for you. Wearing a hearing aid takes a bit of practice, but you may be able to make some adjustments yourself. You may even be able to programme it to deal with specific sounds that you find too quiet or loud, but this will depend on the model.
It may be uncomfortable at first, and your voice might sound too loud, which is called the occlusion effect. You may be able to correct this, or you might just get used to it. Feedback can be annoying, and your audiologist may be able to adjust this for you. They can also make adjustments for background noise issues.
When you choose London Hearing, you will get an exceptional aftercare service. It’s one of the reasons our customers are so happy with our services. We provide you with premium lifetime aftercare, and we take great care to help you get the most out of your hearing aid and enjoy life to the full.
Your hearing will change over time, so you can come back to make regular appointments to discuss your situation including any changes you are experiencing, and you can get adjustments made to your hearing aid.
We want you to get the most out of your hearing aid, and we help this by providing regular assessments and evaluations. We will retest your hearing, provide expert assistance and advice, and provide you with information on new hearing aid technology.
While hearing aids have become smaller and smaller over the years, the latest generation device – the Lyric Phonak – is so completely hidden inside the ear canal that only the wearer knows it’s there. That is why it is known as an invisible hearing aid. It has…Read More
